Keeping you safe

We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning students to our campus. Please familiarise yourself with the measures we have put in place to help keep our community safe.

College-level students

Timetables have been emailed to all college students. If you are a new student, you can find your timetable on the email address you have used on the application. If you are a progressing or returning student then you need to check your Confetti emails.

Student ID cards and lanyards can be collected at induction and need to be worn visibly at all times when you are on campus.

Reception and student services will be open from 8am on Monday to answer any queries.

We’ve introduced some changes to our campus, to help ensure our staff, students and visitors remain safe.

We are supporting social distancing

We have created new one-way systems

We have enhanced cleaning regimes and are using anti-viral fogging in all rooms daily

We have introduced hand sanitiser stations

We are displaying COVID-19 signange

We want to work and study together respectfully and safely.

You can play your part in helping keep our community safe by sticking to our guidelines:

Support and maintain social distancing

Maintain a clean working area

Follow our directional signage and keep left

Regularly wash and sanitise your hands

Wear your ID lanyards at all times

Wear an appropriate face covering in communal areas (no offensive imagery or language printed on covering allowed)

As teaching room doors will remain open, be considerate of noise levels

While we are doing everything we can to keep you safe while on campus, COVID-19 is still circulating in Nottinghamshire and the UK as a whole. Should you test positive for COVID-19 or develop symptoms you will need to keep us informed.

Symptoms to look out for

  • A new, continuous cough
  • High temperature
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

What to do if you develop symptoms/test positive

If you develop the symptoms listed above while on campus, please inform your tutor or a member of staff immediately (please maintain social distancing and wear a face covering when doing so) and go straight home:

  • Avoid touching anything, use anti-bac and wash hands regularly
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue and put it in the bin, if you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow
  • Avoid public transport to travel home, if possible

If you develop the symptoms listed above when you are not on campus, please DO NOT come to Confetti and inform the Absence Line immediately.

What will happen after you inform us

Our teams will be in touch to establish:

  • Who you have come into contact with
  • What building/rooms you have been in
  • When the symptoms started

You will then be asked to call 119 or visit the NHS website and schedule to have a COVID-19 test. Please remain at home until you have received your test results.

What we will do to keep the community safe

Together with our Estates team we will organise the immediate deep clean of all areas that the student has been in contact with.

In the case of a suspected case (student reporting symptoms) we will inform all those that have been exposed. There is no need to self-isolate unless displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Please take extra-precautions regarding social distancing and handwashing.

In the case of a confirmed case (student reporting a positive test)  we will inform all those that have been exposed and ask that you self-isolate for 14 days. If you are displaying any symptoms, please contact NHS 119 for further advice/testing.

When you can return to campus

You will be allowed to return to campus if:

  • Your period of self-isolation has finished
  • You AREN’T displaying any symptoms

If your symptoms continue after the period of self-isolation, please remain at home until you are asymptomatic.

Thank you for helping keep the Confetti community safe.

A full risk assessment has been conducted and will be made available on our website soon.
